Mayor Tim Paulissen


The City Council meeting was called to order at 6:00 p.m. with all members present except Councilman Kinsey.

Appointments, Proclamations Presentation and Awards I presented certificates and patches to six Volunteers In Policing recognizing their earned Intermediate VIP status.

In Councilmember Comments, Councilwoman Bentley spoke about the Memorial Day Ceremony and the Fairview Cemetery’s historical recognition. She also reminded everyone that they had 45 minutes left to get out and vote. Councilman Mann thanked the Volunteers in Policing and also spoke about the Citizens for Space Exploration annual trip to Washington D.C. to lobby. He stressed the importance of volunteers to the community. Councilwoman Thiess explained that she was not able to attend the Memorial Day Ceremony because she was speaking at another ceremony. She spoke about her speech and the importance of remembering the very real sacrifices people have made for the freedoms we enjoy. Councilwoman Dawson spoke about the Memorial Day Ceremony at Fairview Cemetery and thanked everyone involved in making it a success.

In Mayor’s Report, I gave a report on all of the upcoming events at Helen Hall Library. You can see a full list of events at www.leaguecitylibrary.com. I also thanked everyone involved in the Memorial Day Ceremony and Fairview Cemetery Historical Marker Ceremony; there were over 400 attendees at the event. I also recognized Dan Seal with Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership. He attended the council meeting along with Bob Mitchell and David Braun who was the coordinator of the Washington D.C. trip to lobby for NASA. Over the last five years, BAHEP and representatives have made roughly 2,200 congressional visits and this was the twenty-third time they’ve made the trip. Councilman Mann and I attended this year and we sat down with several congressional leaders to talk to their staff about the importance of continuing to fund NASA. We’re a big part of the NASA area. We employ a lot of people here in the League City area and we’re definitely affected by any cuts or potential addition at NASA. I mentioned a few upcoming City events.
